The promo:

The Constitution doesn’t say anything about sex – though the Declaration of Independence promoted the pursuit of happiness – but for the past hundred years or so, courts have been in our bedrooms. Law Professor Geoffrey Stone has the low-down. One hundred years after women won the right to vote, professor Brooke Kroeger reveals the role that men – or “suffragents” – played in the movement. And commentator Alexi McCammond of Axios talks with Peter Ogburn on the Bill Press Show about the friction between Trump and Congress.

 

The Suffragents won the  Gold Medal in US History in the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards competition.
